URGENT ACTION ALERTS
Stop Open Borders/Overpopulation Compounding Threats Now!
$350 Million for Migration and Refugee Assistance has been included in Congress’ CoronaVirus Stimulus Bill demonstrating again The Power of the Open Borders Lobby! And there are more Open Borders Threats. Read on!
And Note that the Virus “Hotspots” Worldwide have one Negative in common – they either are Ecologically Overpopulated and/or have substantial inflows of Immigrants/Visitors from Overpopulated areas.
In the Viral Hotspot Northern Italy, for example, China has for the past couple of Decades, been buying Italian luxury Brands, but also in that period has brought in over 100,000 Chinese Workers from Wuhan and elsewhere in China to continue the manufacturing. And now the Italians are paying the Ultimate Price for Open Borders (N. Gingrich, Life, Liberty & Levin, 3/29/2020)
Similarly, U.S. Open Borders Immigration Policy continues to pose an increasing Threat to the American people.
From the Day the President’s CoronaVirus Task Force was established, January 29, 2020 to March 18, 2020 the USA resettled 3,037 Refugees (including 19 high-risk Iranians) across the USA. And this “Despite the Admissions …
“…of both chiefs of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees that ‘refugees may be particularly targeted’ by the coronavirus….”
“Refugees Are Being Resettled Despite Coronavirus Outbreak
More than 3000 resettled since pandemic task force was created,” CIS.org
Specifically, despite the Trump Administration attempt.
“Trump administration to limit the virus outbreak inside the United States, refugees are still being admitted into American communities. From January 29 (the day the President's Coronavirus Task Force to lead the U.S. government response to the coronavirus was formed) to March 18 (the deadline for this report), the United States resettled 3,037 refugees, including 19 Iranians (Iran is one of the countries particularly affected by the coronavirus). The day after the deadline for the report, March 19, two more refugees were admitted into the United States, both from Syria. …”
Incredibly, the “Refugees” were resettled in States already Suffering the highest levels of CoronaVirus Infections.
“…The top-10 states where refugees were resettled from January 29, 2020 to March 18, 2020, according to official U.S. government Refugee Processing Center portal are as follows: California: 341; Washington, 274; Texas, 207; New York, 201; Kentucky, 155; Ohio, 148; Michigan, 118; Illinois, 113; Pennsylvania, 106; and Arizona, 95….”
Now there is some (albeit conflicting) evidence that President Trump has stopped Refugee Resettlement for now.
However, True or Not, it could be restarted at any time.
And Legal and Illegal Immigration continue to Burgeon.
In California, as well as elsewhere in the Leftist-run cities of the US, disease is an accepted “virtue-signaling” opportunity. As a result, the illegal carriers are entitled to all the U.S. Taxpayers-funded Benefits to which all the Legal Immigrants (400,000 per year! – U.S. Census) who already settle ANNUALLY in California alone, are entitled.
Those Benefits (NOT generally accorded to American Citizens) include “Free” Medical Care, Welfare, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing etc., which nearly 70% of those 400,000 use and which the NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) Cost is $758 Million per Year per every Congressional District in the USA (see CCN Net Costs Study) not including additional State and Local costs.
One Extraordinary Consequence of this Taxpayer-subsidized 400,000 Annual Legal Immigrant Flow into California, and the 1.2 Million into other States, is that the subsidized Immigrants are able to displace the lowest American Wage Earners from Housing. Frankly, this intensifying displacement is one Main (but not only) Cause of Homelessness!
So given the foregoing, it was, last November, Critical to Stop S.386 and to stop Senator Lee (AKA “the Senator from Mumbai”) from Merging S.386 with Senator Durbin’s (D-IL) Open Borders “RELIEF” ACT (a de facto Open Borders/Unlimited Legal Immigration Bill).
Unfortunately, though we and our ASAP! Coalition Allies temporarily stopped it, Senators Durbin and Lee did a Midnight Bill Merger just before the end of the December, 2019 session and we expect an attempt to pass this Merged Bill in the Senate just after the Virus Peak [ed. addition 3/31/20]. Worse, in addition, the House also passed and sent to the Senate, H.R. 5038 and H.R. 6 which could also be merged after the peak [ed. addition 3/31/20].
And as well, the outrageous “New Way Forward Act”, H.R. 5383, would require U.S. Taxpayers to pay for the return to the USA of Convicted and Deported Illegal Alien Criminals and H.R 5038 would:
- Amnesty 1.5 Million Illegal Alien farmworkers and give them Green Cards, a Path to Citizenship and would fund the aforementioned Benefits (Health Care etc.) and additionally provide money for Housing Assistance! More housing displacement and suffering for our poorest Citizens!
And H.R. 6 would not only Amnesty the 10 Million Plus DACAs but also the Millions on Temporary Protected Status, with all the aforementioned Benefits!
And the ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES are Negative too: While population growth often increases aggregate GDP, it always (no Nation is an exception) reduces per capita GDP, which is the best test of a Nation’s Wealth and individual well-being.
“CoronaVirus, SARS, Influenza – What Pandemics Tell Us Abut U.S. & Global Over-Population – BALANCE’s Solution” balance.org, February 14, 2020
And, BALANCE has long ago warned of the Disease Impacts of Mass Immigration, “Disease Infected Illegals Flood Our Border – TB, Parasites, Pneumonia, Dengue, et al,” April, 2019.
In sum, The Great Threat is that when it becomes apparent that we are just getting over the “Hump” of CoVID-19 Spread, we expect the Open Borders lobby to redouble efforts to pass ALL the aforementioned Open Borders Bills with predictable Consequences as we have listed in many previous Action Alerts.
Bottom Line: World Population increases by 80 Million per year! Thus the pressure to come to the USA from overpopulated areas will only increase.
Now, with the Corona Pandemic Raging, the USA is suffering yet another Negative Consequence of Globalism (as opposed to Nationalism and Internationalism). Over two decades ago, BALANCE co-sponsored a “Lifeboat USA” Conference. “Lifeboat USA” says it all. We must do all we can to protect our already dangerously overcrowded National lifeboat from sinking. This requires:
- An immediate all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal immigration
- USA production of all essential Goods, Materials and Services (China now produces over 80% of all pharmaceuticals including Penicillin!)
- Close the Borders to Illegal Entry. Consider further Disease Consequences of Not doing that on which BALANCE reported in April 2019.
The Solution is to end the Visa Lottery, and Chain Migration and Birthright Citizenship and above all to Limit the overall Numbers via an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium.
We reiterate: to reduce the number of Illegals, it is essential to dramatically reduce the number of Legal “Slots” (e.g., the uncapped Asylee Category) which serve as a Magnet for their coming!
So tell Congress NOW You want
- Enactment of an all-Categories-included Zero-NET MORATORIUM (i.e., where Immigration equals Emigration, i.e., about 150,000 per year)) on Legal Immigration! and
- Complete funding for The Wall
- Implementation of e-Verify
- An end to
- Catch and Release
- unlimited grants of Asylum
- Chain Migration
- Anchor Baby citizenship
BALANCE has documented the toll that Mass Migration takes on the Environment (Pressure Intensifying to Migrate to the US) , including the loss of one acre of farmland or natural habitat for every person added to the U.S. population. And reported on the $330 Billion Annual NET lost to U.S. Taxpayers from Legal immigration (Net Cost of Legal Immigration Study).
And please help BALANCE MOBILIZE ACTIVISTS and contact Media and Congress to intensify our push for the aforementioned all-categories included Zero-NET MORATORIUM TODAY, NOW! Contact your representatives!
We expect the Open Borders lobby to move to enact all the aforementioned “Bad Bills” very soon.

Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies who push a Moratorium on the approximate 1.6 Million Legal Immigrants who settle in the U.S. each year (including the 400,000 settling each year in California), create much more Political Clout for reduction in both Legal and Illegal immigration numbers than Donations to Mass Immigration Management Groups, i.e., those who refuse to push for an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium, and, therefore, de facto endorse continued Mass Immigration.
Indeed, failure to push for a Zero-Net Moratorium constitutes de facto support for continuing Mass Immigration, only at lower levels.
Indeed, one Management Group, Numbers USA, recently bragged “We’re not missing a beat in Mobilizing. The Open Borders provisions … we’ve kept out of the Senate rescue package, (claiming) years of Deep Networking on the Hill,” made their “victory” possible!
Reality: OUTRAGEOUS & COUNTERPRODUCTIVE FALSE CLAIMS.
“The Bill enacted contained $350Million! for Migration and Refugee Assistance!!” Numbers USA’s Fake News Victory Claims encouraged Activists to stop resisting the Open Borders Lobby!
And the other National Management Group, FAIR, seemed MIA on the Bill. FAIR seems oblivious to the Fact that Uncapped Categories of Legal Immigration (e.g., the Asylee Category) are Magnets for Illegal Migrants. See unfairus.org. Very Sad and entirely Counterproductive. So support BALANCE and the other Groups which support a Zero-Net Moratorium.
